On the face of it, uncertainty and confusion sound like entirely unpleasant things. Most of us find certainty comforting.
This is because certainty provides a sense of control and assures us that we won’t have to deal with any sudden shocks.
Meanwhile, we also typically like the clarity of thought and feeling, as it helps us feel like we know ourselves and those around us.
Now, what if I told you that this default approach gets it all wrong? As it turns out, you can improve your Law of Attraction results by embracing both uncertainty and confusion. Here’s why, and how you could embrace uncertainty…
Firstly, it’s important to distinguish between low and high levels of certainty. Both can be useful, but you’ll benefit from responding in different ways.
Let’s look at low, underlying uncertainty first. This is typically that nagging sense that you might not be doing the right thing.
The important lesson to learn here is that this type of uncertainty will seldom vanish completely and that it needn’t stop you from getting what you want. If you’re never willing to act anytime you’re the least bit uncertain or confused, you’ll remain inert. Instead of leaving your comfort zone and starting to pursue your dreams, there will be an endless chain of excuses for why now isn’t just the right time to start your manifestation work.
The truth is that you’ll never be entirely certain that you’ve set the right goals at the right time. Even famous actors, billionaires, and world leaders experienced a moment when they thought “This just isn’t going to work.”
That moment, or multiple moments like it, must be seen as simply part of the journey. Even as you face this doubt, you can learn to trust that the Universe will work with you to ensure you get what you need. Now, let’s consider the more surprising point: that you can actually use a deep level of uncertainty and confusion to your advantage.
When you look at some of the most exciting Law of Attraction success stories, a fascinating theme begins to emerge: many of the people in these inspiring narratives started pursuing their dream before they really felt ready.
In other words, they dived into the manifestation process without thinking they had all the answers. It’s obvious that taking this approach works, but what’s the reason behind its effectiveness?
Cognitive dissonance, i.e. a sense of internal inconsistency, is typically thought of as producing negative energy. However, if it’s used in the right way then it can be the seed from which incredible change will grow.
No matter whether you’re simply feeling a little confused about your dreams or you’re so uncertain that you’re downright frustrated, you can tap into these feelings to fuel your manifestation.
When you’re confused, you want to learn. You want to understand, explore and move forward. These drives are all associated with transformation, and vibrating on a high frequency (both intellectually and emotionally).
In time, you’ll experience a moment of clarity and understanding that fosters greater levels of certainty. You’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that it came through introspection, exploration, and bravery.
In the opposite circumstance, if you felt utterly confident and like there were no questions that need answering, you’d be vibrating on a frequency of stagnation. Consequently, it won’t take you down the thrilling road to success.
Now that we’ve considered the reasons why attracting new things into your life requires you to embrace both underlying uncertainty and major uncertainty, let’s summarize the three main practical benefits uncertainty can provide.
These benefits are there for you regardless of where you experience uncertainty; even if it’s not directly connected to your manifestation work.
If you think back to some of your major achievements, were you ever entirely sure of what you were doing? You most likely had some reservations, and look where you ended up! Creating a better life than you one you have requires stepping into the unknown.
When you do preserve in the fact of cognitive dissonance, you prove to yourself that your potential is limitless. You can do anything if you put your mind to it. However, it’s hard to believe that when you hesitate in the background, refusing to step forward into uncertainty.
No matter what happens when you try something new or something that makes you feel unsure, you’re giving yourself the chance to learn more about who you are, the skills you have, your deepest underlying needs, and your previously hidden capacities.

This is a gift, but it isn’t one you’ll receive if you only act when you feel absolutely certain. After all, the safety of pure certainty can only exist if you’re repeating old, familiar things that have little to teach you in the present.
